The management of Kaduna Refinery and Petrochemical Company (KRPC) on Thursday said it would increase production of kerosene to meet consumers’ demand.
The Executive Director, Service of the company, Mr Idi Muhktar, said this in Kaduna while answering questions from newsmen at the ongoing Kaduna International Trade Fair.
He said the number of kerosene users had risen due to the increase in population, thereby stretching the capacity produced over the years.
Muhktar said that more people were likely to use the product during the rainy season.
``NNPC has taken full measures toward full production capacity as importation would augment local production of the product,’’ he said.
He also said that the daily production of 700,000 liters of kerosene by KRPC was not enough to make the desired impact.
“This will go up in the next few weeks.”
